Double-Crusted Buttermilk Pie

This take on the classic buttermilk pie features the addition of a top crust, for those of you who like extra crispy textures with your creamy, nutmeg-scented, buttermilk filling. Checking to make sure the pie has set can feel a bit like guesswork if you don't trust your ability to feel for jigging custard, but you can alleviate this issue by cutting a small, decorative hole in the center of the top crust before applying it to the pie.
